Hike to Cape Clear from Big Intervale, Cape Breton Island

I was part of a small group that hiked from Big Intervale, along the Margaree River, to Cape Clear. It was a very wet day!

We saw lots of interesting things, for example, bear claw marks on an oak tree (they are after the acorns),

otter scat along the river (full of tiny fish bones and scales),

the uncommon Black Snakeroot (Sanicula marilandica) along the river bank,

and some fabulous views along the Margaree River and from Cape Clear:
